The primary goal is to minimize delays for the motoring public, ensuring that disruptions are kept to a reasonable level. However, adjustments to the work schedules may occur due to weather conditions, equipment issues, or other unforeseen factors.

Klamath County Public Works and the Board of County Commissioners request the public’s patience and cooperation during this repair season. Improvements to local roads and bridges are essential for maintaining safety and infrastructure integrity.
